    McConnell needs to get replaced... he's even old for turtles.

    In a 2016 decision the Federal court for the Northern Mariana Islands (US) threw out their $1000 tax on handguns as a 2A violation.

    7. $1,000 Excise Tax

    Finally, Murphy challenges the excise tax of $1,000 that SAFE applied against handguns imported to the Commonwealth. 4 CMC § 1402(h).[36] Murphy argues that the tax heavily burdens the exercise of the right to purchase a handgun, and therefore fails constitutional scrutiny. The Commonwealth, on the other hand, contends that the tax has a legitimate revenue-generating purpose and that the Court should not second-guess the legislature's means of raising funds to operate the government. The Court agrees with Murphy that the tax places an excessive burden on the exercise of the right of law-abiding citizens to purchase handguns for self-defense without a corresponding important government interest. Accordingly, the law cannot stand.

    I've never been much of a fan of taxation *with* representation...
